policy? >> well, in foreign policy i think the point jake has made and broken is probably the most important one. i doubt very much you'll hear much about north korea. there will be a condemnation, i imagine. we've been through this, watched this dance before. new leader comes into north korea, needs to show his stuff, needs to consolidate the -- his support with the military, which is the backbone of the military dictatorship, so they do something provocative like this. everyone condemns it. chinese will condemn it but they're the only country who can do anything about it because north korea's the most isolated country in the world and china doesn't want it to collapse. though china provides it with energy and food, it's not going to do anything. so obama doesn't have much actionable he could talk about. with regard to iran, they feel as though they've got the pressure on iran. they are watching to see what happens. and i don't think there's going to be much percentage in talking a great deal about situations that are unfolding. this is going to be a speech about the domestic econ

what his big foreign policy announcement is going to be, jake tapper just broke that the president will announce on afghanistan that u.s. troops will be reduced by half by february of 2014, the number of u.s. troops in afghanistan will go down to 34,000, that's specificity we didn't have before and we expect him to detail tonight. carol, by and large the president will be focusing a lot on domestic priorities, specifically the economy. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. >> reporter: how times have changed. when he addressed congress one year ago, president obama faced sagging poll numbers and a tough road to re-election. the result? a state of the union address that contained few new proposals and largely fell flat, not likely this year. >> his party gained seats in both the senate and the house. the american people broadly speaking are with him and so he can deliver a speech without the kinds of political constraints that he faced just 12 months ago. >> reporter: white house officials tell cnn that tonight's address will book end the president's inaugural speech l

? >> well, i don't think it's a surprise to the foreign policy and military people that north korea is a threat and has these nuclear ambitions. i think that president obama actually for many years even going back to the senate and before, was very focused on this issue of nuclear proliferation. and it's the kind of thing that you can talk about in a speech like this, because it isn't only about legislation and what can get passed in the here and now. it's also domestically and in foreign terms kind of what do you want the country to know and what do you want it to do. >> let me ask the difference between doing an inaugural address and the state of the union, you have worked on both of these addresses before. have you ever done both and had to differentiate? i want to know about the mechanics of what it is like for someone like you, to have to craft two extraordinarily important speeches that are heard on a world stage and do they have alternating missions? >> they do a bit have alternating missions, obviously an inaugural address is more formal. it's outdoors. it speaks in some ways to
